Join your host ABC Classic FM's Russell Torrance to hear performances from the three finalists of the prestigious 2016 Freedman Classical Fellowship in concert and be there as this year's winner is announced. The annual Fellowship awards a classical instrumentalist less than 30 years of age with a $20,000 scholarship to undertake a career-enhancing creative project.

The 2016 finalists are:

Stefanie Farrands,violist (Tas) plans to commission three new chamber music works for viola and other instruments by Australian composers, then perform and record these works with highly regarded Australian musicians, based both in Australia and in Europe.

Kaylie Melville, percussionist (Vic) will seek to develop her international profile specialising in contemporary and experimental music performance by commissioning Wreak, a major new work for solo percussion, live electronics and animation. Kaylie will collaborate with composer and sound artist Gemma Peacocke (NZ/USA) and animator Timothy Armstrong (NZ/DE) to create an ambitious hour-long show that will highlight the virtuosity of percussion and explore new technology in contemporary music.

Alex Raineri, pianist (Qld/Vic) will undertake further tuition in UK, Italy and Austria. He then plans to commission and workshop three new Australian works for solo piano, program five self-commissioned Australian words and record a CD of commissions for independent release and digital distribution. The culmination of his project will be a performance tour throughout Australia and New Zealand performing these new Australian works.

The concert will be broadcast Live on ABC Classic FM.
